Remind The Solution vs Intuition liners
 
I'm looking to drop some coin on an aftermarket liner to hopefully eliminate the pressure point on the top of my foot.

Any input on which one I should go with? I have a ridiculously wide toe box and a narrow heel.

Wasn't familiar with Intuition. Took a look at their web site. Seems to me those are ski boot specific liners. I didn't see SB boots mentioned anywhere. Might want to check on that.

The problem with Intuition that you will run into is that if your boot doesn't have a sewn in inner lace option it's gone. They also take up more volume than the Reminds. Great product but not ideal for a snowboard boot. Now Reminds the issue you might run into is the fit with your boot you need to try them on to see if they work. Some people have 0 problems other people not so lucky.

is there any simple way to know if they will fit in your boot? is it by brand, or by size that the fit doesnt work? i should probably just email them..

I'm not following you on this one. It looks like the intuition dreamliners have a regular liner lace on them with the drawstring thing. I have room to spare, my boots are currently shimmed with foam. Needed to size up to get the width needed for my toe box.

I purchased a pair of the Remind Solution liners a little more than a month ago. Only got to use them once for a really short am session before the back trouble that benched me for a month.

I have been out with them 3 times now in the last week. I believe BA has a full review of them on his site. (...it was very positive, main reason I bought them.) I intend to post my impressions and opinions on them soon once I get a few more days in using them, now that my back isn't keeping me off the hill.

I will say this, they appear to be a very well made, quality liner. Better quality than the original liners. Now,... @ $130, easily the price of a brand new pair of boots (at least assuming EOS sales.) they are pricey. But my 2010/11 thirtytwo ST Boa's now feel and perform like brand new boots. And I've easily got well over 100-130+ days in them with the original liners.

If you really like and want to get extra season(s) out of the boots you have? These are definitely worth considering.

that seems to be the one drawback.. for instance, I paid somewhere in the neighborhood of $200 or so for my Rome Libertines.. i love them, they are the most comfortable boot I've worn, but they hurt also. I want to alleviate the pain, but it's hard to justify taking an already expensive product, throwing out basically everything but the shell of the product, and then spending $130 extra to make them right.. just seems crazy

Sorry but that statement has me a little confused. No sarcasm intended, but "they are the most comfortable boots you've owned, and thay hurt???

How r they hurting you? What about their fit do you think is causing that? I understand the point you made about the cost on top of the cost of the boot. I think that's a valid point if we are talking new boots. That may not be the most practical solution in that situation.

My point was for the price of a pair of "on sale boots,.". (Which never seem to be available in my size.). You can renew and extend the life of your old, much loved and ridden boots.

My vans are the most comfortable boot I have ever worn, but still cause me pain. I'd rather shell out the money on a newish pair of boots for the liners to make them absolutely perfect.

basically, these are the most comfortable boots out of all of the pairs that I have owned - BUT, that being said, I have never had a day of snowboarding where I wasn't in almost constant foot pain. The Libertines are worlds better than, say, the Vans boots i had before (fit wise, for me personally), but they are still far from perfect.

I have very wide, very flat feet. They get significantly wider as I put pressure on my feet.. what generally tends to happen is that my boots are too tight across the ball of my foot, leading me to try to keep it loose down there, which normally also makes the rest of my foot really loose in my boot. If I tighten them, I am guaranteed pain.. usually the first 2 runs are brutal, then it calms down to a dull ache,and then after lunch usually starts to hurt again. Sometimes it is just across the ball of my foot (the widest part), and sometimes it is also in my arch, especially when really cranking down on my toe edge (which i ride on more often than my heels.) I have tried a bunch of different insoles (never Remind, mostly from local shops and stuff) with the same result - they generally hurt MORE because people that are selling this shit dont understand that I dont want an insole to FIX my flat foot but something that will mold to the shape my foot ALREADY is and make it comfortable. I cant snowboard with some massive arched insole trying to fix my flat feet.

TL;DR - my boots are comfier than any others ive had, but they still hurt 99% of the time.
